You're not forced to renew, and you can transfer out before the domain expires (to a cheaper registrar, if there is one - as it's most likely a global price hike). I wouldn't call it deceitful at all, and quite frankly Namecheaps < $1 promotions have all been awesome.So get as many people in as you can under the old price and then they will renew at the newer higher prices.
Godaddy and 1&1 are also throwing these $0.99 deals constantly for the same reasons. If domain prices are increasing it will happen with every registrar, I would have no problem renewing with Namecheap compared to the other two.So get as many people in as you can under the old price and then they will renew at the newer higher prices.
Why not? They have what's left of 28th, then 29, 30, 31, 1, and 2nd of June which are supposedly enough, not to mention that such type of "countdown" usually gets faster with time getting closer.True, the deadline is on June 2nd and it seems quite difficult to reach that amount of tweets in the time left.
However I'm more concerned of how many domains they're planning to offer, for example, if just 100 of so "sponsored" domains, then that's just ##### of them. Since if they spend on every domain $8 on average, then 100 domains means they've spent $800, for the whole disturbance they've caused by then, and people waiting/refreshing, which I hope not to be the case.
Internet.BS is likely the one with the lowest non-promotional prices. It's where I order the bulk of my domains from. Other than that, you can often find a coupon for GoDaddy but I try not to support them if I can help it. Plenty of better registars I'd rather give my money to than them.Hi,
what are the cheapest registers around?
Well the day is almost over and they are still at 3.4k tweets and they would need about 3.4k tweets each day to meet the quota. It can happen but seems a little difficult to me. Lets hope they do make it so we can all get a $1 domainWhy not? They have what's left of 28th, then 29, 30, 31, 1, and 2nd of June which are supposedly enough, not to mention that such type of "countdown" usually gets faster with time getting closer.
Well hopefully we will get the $1 domain from Namecheap because sadly 1&1 doesn't list my country :/Namecheap makes people work for a $0.98 domain, while 1&1 is just giving them out right now (and occasionaly do so). I do prefer Namecheap over 1&1 though. Either way, I wouldn't wait around for such an offer to register a really good domain that might be available. When I see these kind of offers I mostly end up registering anything that comes to mind and has no real [important] use to me later.
